- A forum to demand justice for the families of the 44 Ghanaians allegedly murdered by Gambian authorities has began
- 56 West African immigrants including the 44 Ghanaians were subjected to torture by a Ganbian paramilitary team known as the Junglers
- The forum has become necessary as family members of the victims claim the Ghanaian government is doing little to help the situation
YEN.com.gh understands that a Jammeh2Justice Ghana Campaign forum, organized to delve into the details of how 44 Ghanaians lost their lives in Gambia, has resulted in open shedding of tears.
A lone survivor has narrated the circumstances under which the victims were killed in 2005 and this compelled those present to break into tears.
The forum has been organized to demand action against those complicit in the act, especially former Gambian leader, Yahya Jammeh.
Martin Kyere, the survivor, noted that 56 West African immigrants, of which the 44 Ghanaians were part, were subjected to inhumane treatments.
They were reportedly murdered by the “Junglers”, the military group that took instructions from Jammeh.
Per a report citinewsroom.com, Kyere revealed he dodged bullets after escaping from a truck on which the detained migrants were being transported.
He added that he joined the campaign to demand justice for the dead migrants so as to ensure that the guilty pay for their actions.
The Ghanaian government has meanwhile revealed that investigations into the massacre have been reopened, but the affected families claim little has been done.
In other news, Ghana’s version of the slave trade that rocked the African continent 400 years ago has within it sad details some may not want to easily recall.
Four centuries later, some Ghanaians relive the experience in the minds, remembering how it tore families apart and caused some to relocate and forever remain abroad.
Nana Assenso is one of the Ghanaians who remembers family members who suffered similar fates.
